When I think about what I could contribute to Florida A&M University based on the knowledge that I do have with your institution is that i’m a extremely committed student who has beliefs that you can do anything that you set your mind to. There may be some times when I may feel discouraged but why must if I feel like that if things aren’t easily handed to you. You must chase your dreams, and when you do that things will slowly fall into place (not exactly how you planned for it to be at times). I learned that through the many obstacles I had to experience to make me the well informed women I am today. The best activity, interest, experience, and achievement in my life was being a Big member of “Big brother, big sister”. Becoming a mentor for
I am Efrashia Nicole Crespin and I was raised here in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I had recently moved to Hobbs, New Mexico and came back to finish my high school career and start at New Mexico State University the following semester. I am majoring in the school of Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management as for short we call it HRTM. I have received numerous scholarships from the university in pursing in bachelors here at New Mexico State. I am grateful for the opportunities the school as offered to me coming from a very low income family.
Where do I even begin? Well, first off…. THANK YOU! You have no idea the impact you have made on not only my life, but so many others. Speaking on behalf of my peers, you truly are a one-of-a-kind and remarkable professor. In my time at Eastern Kentucky University as an undergrad in the History Department, I had my fair share of good, bad and okay professors. You are in none of those categories because you created one for yourself.
I toured many Universities while searching for the perfect fit. I wanted an academic focused school, one with well know school spirit, and one where I felt like family. The University of Florida was the last school I toured. As soon as I walked under the Plaza of Americas and into the stadium I knew. I felt a sense of community and belonging. I felt like the University of Florida could be my home, and that was something I hadn’t felt at any other campus. It was an enthusiastic welcome, a welcome to the swamp, and a welcome to the gator nation. The University of Florida has become my home away from home.
I am a high school senior at Fair Park, looking forward to my first year at Jackson State University in the upcoming fall. My cumulative GPA is currently at a 3.6 average and anticipating to increase next semester. I would be considered the best person to receive a scholarship simply because I go the extra mile to assure my success. Although college is an extensive goal, it could be quite expensive. There is no better way to pay for college than by being awarded money for outstanding academic excellence.
During my visit to Arizona State University this summer, I was able to receive a unique tour of the campus thanks to current students, Claire and Maddie Grayson. The two sisters granted special access into some student-only buildings, and provided a great amount of information about the campus as well. Maddie, Claire, and Glenn Markov, a former ASU student and now current Stanford attendee, were also able to answer any questions that that I had regarding ASU.
My goals at Southern Wesleyan University are to become closer with God and learn more about my major. I chose this University, because this place is very welcoming and an amazing place to learn more about God and all He has done for us. When first deciding on where I was going to go to school, I had not thought too much into this one. I had high hopes of going to Greenville Tech and then maybe transferring here, although after about a month or so I realized they didn’t seem to care whether I went to school there or not. I wanted to be some place that I knew actually cared for my grades and wanted me to achieve. Now here recently they have been sending me many emails about completing orientation before classes start to attend there, but I have found that I love it here more than ever.
When I first came to Kansas State University I thought I had it all figured out. Coming in as an Animal Science major I was more than certain I wasn't going to be one of the students who "changed their major at least once." But I did. My second semster of my first year I decided to take MC 110 as a replacement for a history requirement, little did I know that I would come to love learning about how mass media transformed over the years. From then on I made it priority to take a mass communications class. I was enjoying my mass communication classes more than my animal science classes and I knew I had to make the switch. So this past summer I switched to the A.Q. Miller School with the intent of focusing on advertising. MC 120 taught me a lot
My college experience has been very non traditional. Besides from having to work basically full-time for the entirety of my college career, school in general has been a struggle. My freshmen year, I decided to stay near home and attend Govornors State University. At Govornors State, I did very well but I was not enjoying my time there. My family was extremely disappointed in my decision to stay home. I was always told to "get away" and "get the college experience". I knew I did not want to be far away but I wanted to make my parents proud so I made the decision to go to Illinois State University the following fall.
Before coming to college, I did not have any exposure to interacting with students from other countries or origins, and I did not know what it was like to be surrounded by a variety of different cultures. During my college experience at Missouri State University, I had the opportunity of taking several different classes reflecting diversity and cultural competence and was able to meet and interact with students from all over the world. I enrolled in religious courses, where I studied beliefs and religions from other countries and nations. I truly enjoyed this experience because I am so interested in learning about other beliefs and values and how it relates to my own values and morals. I also enrolled in several sign language courses, in
I pursue the University of Michigan, for Michigan imposes academic challenges, offers diverse classes, and obtains a superior reputation. I yearn for those three qualities in a school, as I will acquire academic greatness and success within the working field.
I am not your typical college student, because my journey to Salem State University has been full of challenges and personal setbacks. While every student has their own personal “demons”, I have face battles that most students will never come across in their lifetimes. I have taken a year off college to deal with financial situations and personal family issues to gather my inner thoughts. Moreover, I have been to three colleges that have taught me huge amount of information, each college has their own set of unique individuals. Some colleges had no resources and others exceed in this category. The students I have met are define by their socioeconomic backgrounds, however those who broke the social norm are the most relatable ones to me. As
As a senior in high school, my counselors have always told me that if I had an opportunity to achieve greater things I would take it. By doing so, being admitted at Texas A&M University will expand my horizons and allow me to come in contact with challenging obstacles that can benefit my knowledge as well as my ability to complete tasks at hand. The journey I would experience as an Aggie would be an unforgettable one. I have begun a new chapter in my life to carry my own responsibilities and that was by deciding my major and beginning my classes that were needed to be complete. The role of being a college student is to commit. Commit to your time management, commit to your studies, and commit to give pride in your school. These three roles
Before my Adventure West Virginia trip I was completely pertrified and I felt like I was destined for failure at West Virginia University in academics as well as my social life. Coming into WVU after my trip definitely softened the blow that college was going to throw at me.The orientation trip put some swagger into my step entering college because I knew That there were people who actually believed that I could undergo this mammoth of a task, it also helped that I knew a little about the university than if I went completely blind. The most important knowledge that I valued and retained from my journey was the advice my leaders gave. I’m starting my college year thinking positive because I perceive that will be my game changer in times of
In my search for the college I would attend, I did not at first really consider ISU as an option. Most of my peers talked about ISU as if it were an inferior institution, and treated it as a last resort. However, once I took a step back and looked at ISU with a fresh perspective, I realized that I could maybe fall in love with it. I knew that ISU was a big part of Pocatello’s community, and I adore the involvement of the school with our town. Being a part of ISU’s student body has also helped me to see the pride the community has in our school, and the sense of camaraderie is palpable. But before I let myself experience that, I had to decide to enroll. The ultimate deciding factor for me was the friendly faces and the pre-college involvement
